Conversation with Nate:
N- Dad got a Webkinz bat! Guess what he named it!
Me- (totally distracted with reading) I have no idea. Tell me.
N- Lovecraft. What does Lovecraft mean?
Me (putting down book) What? He named it Lovecraft? Really? HP Lovecraft was a famous author who wrote some really great horror stories about bizarre monsters. Call of Chthulu, At the Mountains of Madness, Dream Quest of the Unknown Kadath; These are great! (In my head, I'm trying to remember how old I was when I read these. 13? 12? Is he old enough to dive into bizarro horror or will I fuck him up forever and make him into a lil' serial killer?)
N- HP Lovecraft? HP? His name was HP?
N- I bet it was short for 'hit points'.
